Team RWB Coronavirus Response

  • Share

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted not only our Eagle family, but our national and global community at large. As public health guidance continues to rapidly evolve, Team RWB is evaluating our response as we work through this unprecedented situation.

Effective immediately, Team RWB is suspending all in-person events. This does not mean that Team RWB’s mission is on hold. We’re counting on our chapters and volunteers to bring Eagle Nation together, even while practicing social distancing. This page includes everything you need to know about Team RWB events during this crisis. width=

  • National virtual events: The suspension of in-person Team RWB events does not mean that Team RWB’s mission is on hold. One of the most critical steps we can take to combat coronavirus is to stay healthy through daily physical activity. Team RWB will increase the number of virtual workouts, challenges, and events for team members to participate in over the next few weeks through the Team RWB App.
  • Quarantine Crusher (#RWBQC): Get moving, inspire others, and stay connected during social distancing with Eagle Nation by your side as part of Team RWB’s 31-day Quarantine Crusher Challenge. Remember, this is a marathon, not a sprint. Our goal is to come out of this better than when we started, together. You might be isolated, but you’re not alone.
  • Wear Red to Give Red (#WR2GR): Team RWB is launching a “Wear Red to Give Red” campaign with a goal of 1,000 liters of blood and blood products donated by Team RWB members (those who are healthy and eligible) by April 15. Those who are not able to donate can participate by sharing the campaign with five battle buddies using #WR2GR. This is an opportunity for Eagle Nation to give back and serve others during unprecedented times. Learn more at: teamrwb.org/wr2gr.
  • Recognition Run: Over the past several months, Eagles have trained for endurance races that were canceled or postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak. We want to recognize their hard work with our “Recognition Run” each weekend. Please help us encourage team members to complete their run at home and share their story with #RecognitionRun, so that all of Eagle Nation can celebrate with them virtually as they cross their finish line, no matter where it may be. Learn more at teamrwb.org/recognitionrun.
